SE’s Comic Nook News: Our First Look At the Amazons of Wonder Woman!

With Gal Gadot making her debut as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this week, Warner Bros. Pictures (by way of EW) has given us a brand new image featuring the demi-goddess herself and a host of fearsome amazonian warriors!

Alongside WW, her mother, Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen), and her two aunts General Antiope (Robin Wright) and Antiope’s lieutenant, Menalippe (Lisa Loven Kongsli).

“Themyscira is influenced by the Greek but it’s clearly more then that,” producer Charles Roven told EW, “It’s a place that has the ‘you’ve never been to’ kind of feel. But once you’re there you’re not so sure you really want to leave so fast.” ​

Director Patty Jenkins had this to say about the amazonian’s armor;

“To me, they shouldn’t be dressed in armor like men. It should be different. It should be authentic and real—and appealing to women.”

With Gal Gadot returning from Batman v Superman as our titular heroine, Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine (Star Trek Into DarknessRobin Wright (Netflix’s House of Cards”), Danny Huston (Clash of the Titans), Ewen Bremner (Snowpiercer), David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything), Saïd Taghmaoui (American Hustle), Connie Nielsen (Gladiator) Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In) and Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead).

Produced by Charles Roven, Zack and Deborah Snyder, and is executive produced by Richard Suckle, Geoff Johns, Wesley Coller, Stephen Jones, and Rebecca Roven.

Working with Jenkins (Monster) as director of photography is Matthew Jensen (Game of Thrones), Oscar-winning editor Martin Walsh (Chicago, V for Vendetta), Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (Amélie, Pan) and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (The Dark Knight trilogy).

Based on characters created by William Moulton Marston and appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment, Wonder Woman is set for a next summer release of June 23, 2017. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
